LILO does allow you to have /boot on a RAID-1 partition. It also allows you
to install it's boot block on the boot sector of that partition (however I
would not recommend that until the next major release of LILO comes out which
does it differently).
I've got several machines with /boot on RAID-1 and it boots fine with LILO.
LILO has no support for RAID-1 or RAID-0 (and no support is planned).
